Concept artist Vin Hill has answered the internet's prayers - an Assassin's Creed game set in Japan. Of course, this is all just unofficial concept art, but it looks pretty much like exactly the game the internet has been begging for for years.

Set during the Meiji restoration in 1868, the samurai were dispersed and a national implemented with a large influence from Western traders such as the united states. With this, the old styled Japan was moved very rapidly into the future with the introduction of an armed forces with firearms. To complete the restoration the new emperor moved the capital from Kyoto to Edo (Now named Tokyo) where the traditional Japan was being lost very quickly. This is the stage in which AC5: RS is set. The player would travel from Kyoto to Osaka then finally to Tokyo where the modernization of japan increases from one city to the next. The main character is a Samurai whom is tied to the Assassin's Clan, a clan which is secret to everyone. The Templars from America have come and influenced the clan heads to disperse and the Assassin clan needs to find out who is responsible and take out the newly formed Japanese Templars.
